Capt.Jeremy had a 4 hour trip today that departed at 7am. He reported action of redfish, flounder, whiting, bluefish and ladyfish as well as a shark. Wind was stiff at about 10knots, but very fishable. Water clarity was good as well.

Capt.Jeremy had a 4 hour bull river trip this morning departing at 8 am until 12 pm, then I had a miss judy trip leaving bahia bleu at 1pm until 5pm. Capt. Jeremy reported the action was slow. A couple other captains that ran the judy trip with me, also were out this morning and reported slow bites and short fish. My guys were all novice anglers, but we did bring in a couple nice trout and caught some afternoon sharks. One of my guys tossed a rod and reel over the side of the boat. Had 2 quarts of live bait stolen this morning as well, but was able to catch most fish on mud minnows and did pick up more live shrimp. Tuff day period. Did notice on the barometer a high pressure build when the wind picked up so much to 15k this afternoon. Around 5 pm wind subsided and the barometer dropped some, so better fishing during the next few days!

Capt.Jeremy had a 6 hour trip today with Ed and his daughter. They went with Capt. Jeremy last year about the same time. I spoke to Ed and he said they had a great time. They caught plenty of speckled seatrout and assortment of other fish and some nice sharks. They were strictly releasing fish. It was windy out in the sound but hot as blazes back at the dock.They Departed at 8am this morning and returned at 2pm . Below is a few pictures of the catches today.

Capt. Rick had a 6 hour 3 person Trip with Randy and his 2 friends from texas that departed at 6:30 am. Capt. Jeremy had Chuck and his wife on a 6 hour 2 person trip that departed at 1 pm. Capt. Jeremy reported the camera needed recharging so he didn't take any pictures, He also had a 4 hour trip on 7.25.2014 for bull river and didn't have the camera.

Any way the following pictures were from Capt. Ricks trip with Randys group. Water was clear but the winds were opposite the tides so we had some chop most of the day. We fished the last of the incoming and 4 hours of outgoing. We Released all fish today, as they didn't want to keep anything. Capt. Jeremys group kept some seatrout and flounder.

Capt. Ricks group caught speckled seatrout, a lizard fish, a ladyfish, 3 bonnethead sharks that the group wanted to catch.

Capt. Jeremy had a 2 back to back trips today. His first trip was a 2 person 6 hour trip that departed at 7am. They were in the fish most of the whole trip. Water temp is still in the mid 80's and the clarity was better than stained. Capt. Jeremy reports that there is a lot of live bait out in the sound. His first trip was with Michael and his brother. They kept 10 Speckled Seatrout, released a huge number of redfish and released a big bonnethead shark and kept a very big flounder. His 2nd trip was for bull river marina and was 2 people that were on a honeymoon. They departed at 2 pm and returned around 6pm. They caught and released several seatrout. The last picture in this series is of the bull river trip. All in all a very full and long day of fishing for Capt. Jeremy! What alot of people don't release is all the before and after work. We strive to start each trip with Live bait. This can be tuff to get somedays. Then at the end of each trip the boat has to be cleaned, fueled and all the fishing equipment oiled and rerigged for the next day. So 10 hours on the water translates to about 14 hours of fishing and prep time.
